The 6ix9ine Nine Trey Trial

The long-awaited trial in the 6ix9ine racketeering case is underway. The rapper, having pleaded guilty in January, is not on trial himself. Instead, he's now the government's star witness. On trial are two alleged members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods: Anthony "Harv" Ellison and Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack. Ellison is charged with kidnapping and robbing 6ix9ine in July 2018, and of slashing a different Nine Trey member that October. Mack is accused of dealing heroin and MDMA (an earlier charge of dealing an analog of fentanyl was taken off of the docket for technical reasons). In addition, both are charged with being members of Nine Trey. The trial, which is taking place at Manhattan's Thurgood Marshall Courthouse, is expected to last a little over two weeks. The complex will be in attendance at all court dates until the trial ends, and we'll be updating this article every day with reports of what happened.
